Album

Wasps Wings

Taylor Skelton

WASPS WINGS is a sweet little love song. From a beach on the West Coast with an image of a woman I'd never met, this song is an ideal of what a perfect romance could be. It's a personal song, and a good snapshot of where my mind was at when I wrote it. It's also fantastical and unreal while being firmly grounded in the sand. The character wants to

WASPS WINGS is a sweet little love song. From a beach on the West Coast with an image of a woman I'd never met, this song is an ideal of what a perfect romance could be. It's a personal song, and a good snapshot of where my mind was at when I wrote it. It's also fantastical and unreal while being firmly grounded in the sand. The character wants to be as good as the woman in question, and the hope is that maybe he's closer than he actually believed himself to be.

But then again, it's all white noise anyway.

Get Me Through

Taylor Skelton

This is the most personal song I've ever written. It's about the struggles I've continuously had with my own mental health. For a long time I believed if I opened myself up I'd only expose myself to be more hurt; to give people their ammunition and invite them to use it against me. When I did finally find that person, when I decided to let my

This is the most personal song I've ever written. It's about the struggles I've continuously had with my own mental health. For a long time I believed if I opened myself up I'd only expose myself to be more hurt; to give people their ammunition and invite them to use it against me. When I did finally find that person, when I decided to let my guard down with her, it was a complete revelation. This song is about that exact moment.

Press / Reviews

"While this album will appeal more to the mainstream crowd, there is little doubt that Skelton writes personal, introspective songs that are sung from his heart."
